Subject: Excellent quality AUD from early Brent era
HOT SHAKEDOWN. Vocals kind of rough but the playing is incredible. Very expressive, engaged. Few bad notes. Minglewood is on fire with blistering solos from everyone. Cassidy doesn't go too far out but has a pleasant psychedelic lilt to it. Althea is nice - Jerry's sadder 80s voice fits this song well and he's really feeling it vocally and on guitar. The band supports well. Lazy Lightning > Supp is among the best I've heard.

Second set Playin' is very nice, tight, jazzy exploration, China Doll is tenderly played. Space is pleasantly melodic, riding the edge between coherence and insane free association. Phil, Bobby and Jerry open the doors of perception at 3:40. We are taken on a journey up to and out of the crown chakra and into the far reaches of the universe, landing in a land of strange yet familiar creatures and plants. There is a sense of wonder and amazement as Jerry finds the same guide that will help Space along in '83. What a wonderfully strange world this is, bubbling all around me. All of a sudden, the magic carpet swoops down under my feet and I am gently lifted again high into the atmosphere, observing the beautifully distant landscapes below, we have transcended into a blissfully peaceful meditative space and we are fully awakened, PLAYING IN THE BAND, and romping as 100 foot giants. The music is powerful and gigantic sounding, a huge fully encompassing multi-dimensional musical space.

The Wheel is musically powerful but kind of sloppy. Tough song to play well because of its gentle melody yet powerful undertow-like drive.The music plays the band.

This is not a 5 star show, it starts out wicked sloppy and the vocals suck. Sorry tres for effort.

Subject: Fantastic
Sound quality is simply superb. The show itself is amazing. Like a previous review mentions, this is not a "scorcher", but the fire in the playing is more like a slow, glorious burn. Bobby is front and center in this mix and I was impressed by his slide work in Minglewood as well as his overall tonality and phrasing. Phil is playing well to my ears, although this may have been during his "Heiniken" period when he was not feeling up to his normal self. His lines are more traditional bass parts in the first set with his playing getting more exploratory in the second. What can be said about Jerry that already hasn't been said? His playing is reaching, searching for the next gem to reveal and light up. This is one of those recordings that I live for.

This has to rank up there with one of the better MOTB's out there to date. Crystal clear sound and pin point seperation. This could easily pass as a Matrix. Great job on this one, no doubt. As to the show, other sources have reviewers saying that it is too slow and sloppy; I couldn't disagree more. Yes the tempo is slower here, but in an incredibly tasty way. The boys have shifted out of the early-80's high gear into low this night, preferring to stop and smell the Roses rather than charge through. While I love a good power show, this one is as good for different reasons. The Shakedown and Supplication are just phenomenal examples of oozing joy. Now I realize that the pace of this show isn't for everyone, but for those who still enjoy a show that is delicate rather than explosive, smooth rather than destructive, this one fits the bill.

hats off again for the sound on this, well done indeed.
